HONGUERO MARTINEZ, A. F. et al. Neoadjuvand chemotherapy of an invasive thymoma: Invasive surgery and left side en bloc pneumonectomy. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2006, vol.29, n.1, pp.47-50. ISSN 0378-4835.

We present a patient suffering from an invasive thymoma discovered in a chest roentgenogram because of progressive dyspnea. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy was used after histological diagnosis, observing a tumor volume decrease of 25 %. The surgical treatment consisted of the thymoma en bloc resection, and a left side pneumonectomy due to affected pulmonary vessels. The combination of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgery is applied as a curative intention therapy.

Keywords : Thymoma; Pneumonectomy; Neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
